Kickstarter + Power and Light Press

Do you guys know about Kickstarter? Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. People post their ideas for projects on the Kickstarter site and request funding from individuals.

This project is a mobile letterpress shop. Kyle Durrie, the proprietor, made a short video to explain the project - why she loves letterpress printing, what she hopes to do. She asked for $8000 and has received over $9000 with 45 days left to go!

i heart st louis

SO, I was going to email this out to everybody, but decided not to be obnoxious and post it here instead.

Guerrilla tactics for our map installations! I know we've got a lot on our plates...but what if we printed out secret prints/or had special items of some sort and deposited them in our favorite spots in Louey? Like a treasure hunt kind of thing. Except we wouldn't tell people what they were...only that they exist elusively in the spots we would highlight on our maps. And that would hopefully generate a lot of excitement and traffic towards those places...

...Would that be mean to all the businesses/restaurants we DIDN'T promote?

Just an idea. We could even just hide little prints of hearts. Even ironically pixelated ones!!
